Just looking for a bit of confirmation really. If a 16-18-year-old joins a full-time study programme with a Level 1 Functional Skills already achieved in maths and/or English. Is this learner then required to study:
a) Only Functional Skills at Level 2
b) Only GCSE
c) Both, Functional Skills at Level 2 and GCSE
I am lead to believe that ‘C’ is the correct answer… Could someone confirm please?
Thanks for your reply. So seeing that the Functional Skills is an approved alternative to GCSE, what would their GCSE grade be recorded as in the ILR i.e. the learner achieved a 2 at GCSE (equivalent to an E using the old standard) but has also achieved the Level 1 Functional Skills. What would the GCSE be recorded as in the ILR?
Hope this makes sense.
